    Well Ok!

    Value:

    PROS:
    Balances very well on the body with strap(@40 or more degrees from horizontal):hyper:
    It looks nice as heck
    Sounds good and cuts through
    Curved Alder and Maple body sits well on your body
    Adjustable Nut

    CONS:
    The ferrules for the headstock tuners were too short and did not engage
    It was not set up even close for Fretless
    The neck relief changes relatively often and needs to be looked at periodically(green wood?):rollno:
    The Warwick straplock system wore out after a couple of years
    A bit on the heavy side


    It has active pickups that sound fine but I replaced them with a passive "Prima" PJ set which sounds more traditional. The sound is not as "open" as bolt on but there is good sustain.
    I had to lower the bridge to the deck and lower the adjustable nut to dial in a good playing action.
    The ferrules for the tuners I had to order from Warwick in Germany. They are not too expensive about $5 each.
    The straplocks that came with it wore out after awhile because the little locking balls would not stay in the groove that was too worn.
    The neck I would say likes lighter strings so I have GHS light gauge Flats on it and it sounds and plays good. Playability is fine not excellent(not as good as the German Corvette fretless with harder neck).
    So it's pretty good bang for the buck and if you are willing to put some time and money into it it can become a real player for you. I like minedrool
